Dakes Bible Notes
For our aconversation is in heaven; from whence also b we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall c
change our dvile body, that it may be e fashioned like unto his glorious body,
f according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
a) Gr.=politeuma. Citizenship; city; civil rights, state; society, or government. Used only here in N.T. The verb is used in 1:27, note 1.
b) Gr.= apekdechomai. It is scriptural to look for the rapture or coming of the Lord in the air for the saints, to take place any time (v.20; Titus 2:13), but not the second advent. The rapture and the second advent are two events separated by at least 7 years. They are not two phases or two stages of one coming, but two distinct comings - one coming in the air (not to earth) before the tribulation (1 th 4:16 with Mt. 24:29). One is coming "for" the saints (Jn. 14:1-3; Lk 21:36; 1 Cor. 15:23; 1 Th 4:13-17; 2 Th 2:1, 7; Phil 3:21; Col 3:4) and the other is coming to earth "with" the saints to set up the kingdom (Zech 14:5; Jude 14; Rev 19:11-21).
c) Gr.=metaschematizo. Transform; change the fashion of; re-fashion. Translated "transform" in (2 Cor 11:13-15); "Transfer in a figure" (1 Cor 4:6); and "change" (Phil 3:21).
d) Gr.=tapeinosis. Body of humiliation. Translated low estate in (Lk 1:48; Jas 1:10); humiliation (acts 8:33); and vile (Phil. 3:21). It refers to the low state of sin and shame which the body of man has degenerated into. Instead of it being deathless, immortal, glorious, and powerful as the ruler of all creation, as originally planned (Gen 1:26-31; Ps 8:3-6), it is now vile, depraved, sinful, sickly, mortal, and subject to the lowest humiliation and eternal ruin (2 Cor. 4:16; Rom 1:18-32 & 6:19; Gen 3:19).
d) Gr.=summorphos. Like-shaped or conformed to. Used here and in Romans 8:29. It has reference, not to exact outward features, but to substance of the body, which will be changed from mortality to immortality; from a natural body to a spiritual body; from a corruption to incorruption and from weakness and humiliation to glory and power (v.21; 1 Cor 15:35-58). It will be flesh and bone like Christ?s body of glory (Lk 24:39; Zech 13:6).
f) The power that made the body and all things originally will be the power that will make the resurrection bodies in a moment (1 Cor 15:51) and subdue all things to God again (1 Cor 15:24-28; Heb 2:9-18).
" Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before the Son of man"
As you meditate on this verse keep in mind that this was spoken by Jesus to the apostles after he told them of the signs that would usher in the end of this age, and the time of tribulation.
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Here is a collection of some bible studies I have done. I hope you are blessed by them, as I was when I did the studies.
PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF ISRAEL
Psa 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
2 Th 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
Psa 25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
Psa 68:34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.
Psa 68:35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
Psa 89:18 For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
Psa 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Bringing Israel to the Christian world.
